The 2020 Geriatric Elections: It’s Time for a Political Movement

“I would much rather vote for liberty and lose than vote for tyranny and win.”

Did you know that since 2013, 57% of Americans have consistently believed the U.S. needs a third political party?

This is to all the non-party voters, those sick and tired of the Democratic (liberal) and Republican (conservative) parties, party voters who lost faith, and those who don’t care or don’t want to bother with voting. Please know that YOU matter. Please know that our country deserves and wants YOUR vote. Comments tossed by party voters who say you’re just throwing your vote away demonstrates their bullying tactics. As I heard on a video, “I would much rather vote for liberty and lose, than vote for tyranny and win.” There’s no reason why we need to keep with blue and red when somewhere along the line they’ve turned another color. This also applies to the local government.

“If you hadn’t noticed, all of these issues have been created under the tutelage of liberals and conservatives.”

Throughout history, government has directed society on how to live. Back in the day, marriage or nunhood were the prominent choices given to women. It wasn’t until the women’s liberation movement demanding “equal rights, opportunities, and personal freedoms for women shifted the social and economic scales”. It took decades to see change, and women are still fighting for more rights, but we did it.

The government has also victimized men. The men’s liberation movement, which began in the early 1970s, broke off into two sectors. The modern men’s movement has concerns with family law, including “child custody and alimony, reproduction”, along with suicides, domestic violence against men, circumcision, and many more”. The fights continue, but they’re making progress.

“It takes years, decades, for change to occur, but if we don’t take the first steps in demanding it, we’ll never know what could have been—a positive change in democracy and freedom. Each year we vote for other parties, chips away at the two archaic party’s stronghold.”

Look at other movements such as BLM and LGBTQ demanding change. If you hadn’t noticed, all of these issues have been created under the tutelage of liberals and conservatives. Each election year, we hear the same regurgitated broken promises from a different face. Each election year, we’re told to choose between these two political parties and are blinded to their silencing of others.

I’ve experienced it myself when debating with a few liberals. I asked them to sign a petition to allow other political parties to be involved in the Presidential debates. It was uncanny how they both reacted in a similar manner. First it was, “I think it’s a great idea,” yet they didn’t sign. Then it was, “Well, they’re going to have to prove to the electorates and American people they’re worthy,” still no signing. I might add, the electorates are Republicans and Democrats, and proving them worthy is part of the debate process. Then it came to, “Well, I don’t think it will make a difference” and “Sell me your candidate and maybe I’ll sign it.”

I wasn’t trying to force my candidate on them. I simply wanted them to join in to allow other platforms and visions to debate. What this showed me was true Democrats and Republicans want government control, which means they don’t believe in democracy and are willing to suppress other people’s rights for the sake of their own.

It takes years, decades, for change to occur, but if we don’t take the first steps in demanding it, we’ll never know what could have been—a positive change in democracy and freedom. Each year we vote for other parties, chips away at the two archaic party’s stronghold.


To start, please head on over to change.org and sign the #openthedebates and #letthemdebate petition. We CANNOT stand by and watch each election year siphon what’s left of our freedoms by the reds and blues, who haven’t made this country better. We’re in a downward spiral, and it won’t reverse itself with only them.

“If 90 million-plus people voted for another party, the government narrative would have definitely shifted.”

In 2016, over 90 million people didn’t vote in the United States. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to choose from in a country of roughly 330 million people.  So instead of voting, over 90 million people decided it wasn’t worth the hassle in choosing the lesser of two evils. But just think how different things might have turned out if you voted for another party. If 90 million-plus people voted for another party, the government narrative would have definitely shifted.

“The 2020 U.S. Geriatric Elections offers us two old white males who should be retired.”

The 2020 U.S. Geriatric Elections offers us two old, white males who should be retired. It’s not hard to see that the POTUS role is physically and mentally grueling. Even up to these past elections, we’ve had slim pickings for quite some time. That’s because running for president comes with a big price tag. If you don’t have the funds, you just can’t run. Should we really put a price tag on the presidency? Or should we allow only liberals or conservatives to play in our arena?

“From the “2020 Presidential Candidates” list from the NY Times, they only show the 2 parties and who dropped out, when in fact, there are 4 parties running in the presidential election.”

To make this easier for all of you who just can’t bear another 4 years of red or blue, I’m going to tell you a little bit about the other party candidates, and you’ll see there are people willing to offer more for this country than what we’ve been forced-fed. The liberal and conservative propaganda believe other parties aren’t worth mentioning. Here’s an example of what the liberal propaganda only gives us: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/us/politics/2020-presidential-candidates.html From the “2020 Presidential Candidates” list from the NY Times, they only show the 2 parties and who dropped out, when in fact, there are 4 parties running in the presidential election.

LIBERTARIAN PARTY

Liberty is valued the most with libertarians, meaning they believe in individual freedom. They believe in people making their own choices in life. To do what they want with their body and property without interference by other people and vice versa. It’s for people to have free will of mind and body. If you’d like to learn more about Libertarians, you can read here.

Jo Jorgensen is the presidential nominee for the Libertarian Party. Let me tell you a little bit about Jo Jorgensen. For starters, she was born in Illinois, my home state, a woman with a B.S. in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. She’s been a life-long Libertarian and was the 1992 candidate for South Carolina. She took time off to raise her children. Jo collaborated, took over and then became the owner of a software duplication company. Today, she has her own consulting firm. Jo Jorgensen wants to make government smaller. She is on the ballot in all 50 States.

This is a video regarding how Jo Jorgensen wants to see America

Jo Jorgenson quotes regarding her vision for the future, which I took directly from her website.

PEACE: “I want to turn America into one giant Switzerland: Armed and Neutral, with the military force to defend America’s shore and soil against any foreign attackers or invaders, protected by an armed citizenry, and a military laser-focused on defending America.”

HEALTHCARE: “We can reduce the cost of health care 75% by allowing real price competition, and by substantially reducing government and insurance company paperwork.”

SPENDING: “As President, I will use my Constitutional authority to block any new borrowing. I will veto any spending bill that would lead to a deficit, and veto any debt ceiling increase.”

ENVIRONMENT: “I will work to remove government barriers to replacing coal-burning and oil-burning power plants in the United States with safe, non-polluting, high-tech nuclear power plants – and allowing off-grid use of solar power. Worldwide, I believe we need to consider all scientific & economic knowledge to care for our environment, not cherry-pick data to support a pre-determined outcome.”

SOCIAL SECURITY: “Do you trust politicians to keep their promises? I don’t. They’ve spent every cent in the social security trust fund on other spending, leaving behind worthless IOU’s. Other countries have successfully replaced their government-run systems with individual retirement accounts safe from greedy politicians. As President, I would work to implement a solution like the Cato Institute’s “6.2% solution, which would allow any American the opportunity to “opt out” of the current system while making the current system fiscally stable for those who choose to remain.”

TRADE AND IMMIGRATION: “The freedom to trade and travel are fundamental to human liberty. As American citizens, we should be free to travel anywhere we choose, and to buy and sell anywhere in the world. As President, I will use my Constitutional authority to eliminate trade barriers & tariffs, and work to repeal arbitrary quotas on the number of people who can legally enter the United States to work, visit, or reside.”

CRIMINAL REFORM: “As President, I will use my Constitutional authority to end federal civil asset forfeiture prior to conviction, and pardon persons convicted of non-violent victimless crimes. I will also work with Congress to end the failed War on Drugs and other victimless crime laws.”

POVERTY: “The real cure for poverty is a vibrant economy that generates plentiful jobs and high wages, combined with an affordable cost of living. As President, I will work to eliminate policies that cripple economic growth. I will give special attention to regulations driving up the cost of housing and health care, as well as those creating barriers to creating new businesses or entering professions. Finally, I will work to repeal laws and regulations that prevent individuals and charitable organizations from helping those in need.”

TAXES: “Taxes are never voluntary – they are always paid under threat of punishment… Voting for more government spending inevitably leads to higher taxes to pay for it – now, or in the future. As President, I will work tirelessly to slash federal spending, make government much, much smaller, and let you keep what you earn.”

EDUCATION: “The Department of Education has failed. In the forty years since the Department of Education was created, government spending on education has skyrocketed, while the quality of education has declined. Students used to be able to work their way through college and graduate debt-free. As President, I will work to eliminate the Department of Education and return control of education to where it belongs – with parents, teachers, and students.”

“She is on the ballot in all 50 States.”

GREEN PARTY

Four pillars the Green party upholds: Peace, Ecology, Social Justice, and Democracy. They don’t want war or military presence anywhere and promote non-violent practices. Climate change is at an all-time high and it’s time to eliminate fossil fuels and learn healthier methods. All persons have a right to benefits and opportunities given by people and the environment. They believe all persons have a right to financing from the public for elections, open debates, and a more inclusive voting system. If you’d like to read more about the Green party, you can read here.

Howie Hawkins is the presidential nominee for the Green Party. An original Green, he organized the first national Green Party in 1984, and campaigned the Green New Deal in 2010. As a San Francisco teenager, he became active in civil rights and opposed the Vietnam War. Drafted in 1972, he enlisted in the Marine Corp. and continued to organize and oppose the war. He has been a constant supporter and organizer for the environment, peace, and justice. His Vice President pick is Angela Walker, an African American woman.

This is a video regarding Howie Hawkins’ view of America’s issues and his future vision.

Howie Hawkins’ quotes and what the party stands for regarding his vision for the future, which I took directly from his website.

ECOSOCIALIST GREEN NEW DEAL: “Our ecosocialist Green New Deal encompasses two major programs, an Economic Bill of Rights and a Green Economy Reconstruction Program. The Economic Bill of Rights will finally fulfill President Roosevelt’s 1944 call upon Congress to develop programs to secure basic economic human rights for all… The Green Economy Reconstruction Program will zero out greenhouse gas emissions and build a 100% clean renewable energy system by 2030.”

MEDICARE FOR ALL: “The fundamental problem with the healthcare system in the United States is that it is designed to create profits for a few rather than guarantee healthcare to everyone… The government has become a cash cow for the health insurers, a guaranteed payor that will line their executives’ and investors’ pockets. The Hawkins Healthcare Plan outlined below treats health care as a human right and a public good…It starts by immediately implementing National Health Insurance, what is commonly called today a single-payer, improved Medicare for All.”

PERSPECTIVES AND POLICIES: “Howie is clear that the only way to create a just society and to save our environment is for us to build toward ecosocialism… Under a capitalist system, we cannot solve the central problems of our time.”

“..my campaign would call for the socialization of key economic sectors: National Currency, Socialize Big Banks, Clean Energy, Community-Controlled National Healthcare, Big Pharma, Arms Industry, Broadband, Online Platforms, Racial Justice, LGBTQIA Justice, Urban Policy, Agricultural and Rural Reconstruction, Peace Policies, Immigration Reform, Civil Liberties, Democracy Reform, and Media Reform.”

A Green Party Vote For:

ECONOMIC BILL OF RIGHTS: Guaranteed job, income above poverty, home for all, Medicare for all, and Free Public Education Pre-K through college.

JUSTICE: Appoint Public Defenders to the Federal Judiciary, Fully Fund the Legal Services Corporation, Empower Racially Oppressed, Open Borders, Legalization of Undocumented Immigrants with a Timely Path to Citizenship, and Abolish Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

PEACE: No First Strike, Nukes Off Hair Trigger Alert, Negotiations Toward Complete Nuclear Disarmament, Deep Cuts in Military Spending, Transition from Forward-Based Imperialism to Home-Based Defense, and a Global Green New Deal.

DEMOCRACY: Instant-Runoff Voting for President, Abolish the Electoral College, Proportional Representation in Congress, Abolish the U.S. Senate, End Voter Suppression—Restore Pre-clearance to the Civil Rights Act, Promote Community Assemblies, Full Public Campaign Financing, and Adopt the We the People Amendment. PROGRESSIVE TAXATION: Income and Wealth Taxes and Eco-Taxes.

“What candidate do you feel a connection to and how will they help you in the next phase of your life?”


You may not agree with everything a party stands for, but we all have certain needs and beliefs we want fulfilled. That’s what voting is all about. What candidate do you feel a connection to and how will they help you in the next phase of your life?

The presidency shouldn’t be about party devotion. It should be about an individual’s stance and strategy to end the internal wars in America. Candidates are connected to parties, and that’s fine if they fit your values and your position in life, but to blindly follow is detrimental to everyone. Couples don’t always agree on things, so why continue to vote for the same party if you notice they’re no longer getting the job done? We all go through stages in life, so why not vote for a candidate who will fulfill your present needs.

Voting in America is not top on many people’s to-do-lists because they don’t care about politics, but aren’t you a fan of a peaceful future for yourself, children, and grandchildren? I get it, we’re tired of the name-calling and outright bullying that goes on with our current government, which is why I’m reaching out to YOU. It’s time to learn a little bit about those who are trying to control our lives, our children’s lives, and grandchildren’s lives. It’s an essential part of life. Start investing in your present and future. Instead of defending your right to vote for whomever you choose or passively wait it out, show the world your right by voting.

If either one of these parties piqued your interest, then read more about what’s important to you and then vote. We have the control to stop voter suppression and offer ourselves new choices. Even if one of these parties doesn’t win, let’s say the Libertarian party receives 5%, it changes the makeup of government. Remember, change takes time.

Take care of yourselves, educate yourselves by research or by talking to other Libertarians or Green party members, and most of all, VOTE!

Your Rights and Voting,
Denise ?

P.S. If you’d like me to find any information for you regarding the other parties, shoot me an email and I’d be happy to send it to you.

      Wow Denise, kudos! I won’t even start to get into how this resonates with many of us in other countries, even when, like in France, there are third party alternatives (problem is, there are about 10 of them..) Really inspiring and well-argued, great stuff ma chère amiexx

        Thanks so much, Laurette. WOW! Ten is a lot of parties. There are millions of Americans unhappy about government, yet none of it’s shown throughout the world. It’s amazing how they’re suppressing voters rights and hiding ads for the Libertarian party. I’m just shocked at how the people and politicians think this is okay. *shakes head* One of these days we’ll get in there and show the world how we can change.
